Case Results

Estate of Barksdale v. Horowitz, DDS

Verdict: $1,000,000

The plaintiff's mother filed a wrongful death case against a defendant oral surgeon for the loss of her twenty-year-old daughter who died from a cardio-respiratory arrest in the office after extraction of a wisdom tooth under anesthesia. The plaintiff's attorney Kurt Lloyd alleged that the oral surgeon terminated recovery room monitoring before the patient had sufficiently awakened from conscious sedation. This case has resulted in more vigilant monitoring of anesthesia patients in dental offices.
